5 Things To Do When Someone Mistreats You

5 Things To Do When Someone Mistreats You
If someone mistreats you, what should you do?

1. Make sure you have your facts straight. In the heat of the moment, it's easy to misunderstand a situation (Proverbs 18:13).
See Cookie Thieves

2. Keep calm and pray. Don’t do anything until you’ve given your anxious thoughts to the Lord (Philippians 4:6-7).
See Attitude Adjustment

3. Remember that you sometimes do things unintentionally that hurt others. Perhaps that's what happened. Give the other person some grace (Matthew 5:5; Ephesians 4:2).
See Inherit

4. Respond in the way you would want others to respond to you (Matthew 7:12).
See 7 Ways to Walk in the Opposite Spirit

5. Apologize to your offender if you didn't get your facts straight or responded angrily even if they were more wrong than you (James 5:16).
See Make No Mistake

The day I wrote this devotion, God gave me opportunity to apply it to my life. I'm so grateful for His Word! 
Note: After getting all of the facts and responding in grace without anger, we may still need to do something to set things straight or to adjust/limit our relationship with the other person. But we should make sure we have acted carefully and fairly ourselves.
